The 49ers and Cardinals were pretty evenly matched in the first half. At halftime, San Francisco has 186 yards and Arizona 185, and both teams have 11 first downs.

The difference was a Colt McCoy interception by Jimmie Ward, which gave the 49ers a short field.

San Francisco leads 17-10 at halftime.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has completed 14 of 21 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns. He threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Aiyuk and a 39-yarder to George Kittle.

Christian McCaffrey has five carries for 31 yards and five catches for 48 yards. Kittle has three catches for 52 yards and Deebo Samuel five for 46.

Elijah Mitchell had only one carry for 4 yards in the first half.

Ward’s pick of McCoy, which bounced off the hand of James Conner, set up a three-play, 46-yard drive that ended with Kittle’s catch-and-run to the end zone.

McCoy is 17-of-23 for 172 yards and the pick, and DeAndre Hopkins has seven catches for 77 yards. Conner ran for a 2-yard touchdown for the Cardinals’ only touchdown, which came after a 47-yard catch-and-run by Greg Dortch.

  1. Cardinals are just a garbage football team. Defense is awful. Offense is awful. Worst part is they have weapons on both sides of the ball. Not sure if this is a coaching issue or if paying Murray has just wrecked the psyche of this team. They look old and slow.

  2. I had to mute the TV. Buck and Aikman making Jimmy G out to be Joe Montana. Let the game manager play from behind and you see how awful he is.

  3. Niners will be 6-4 after tonight, offense is clicking, and we get the Saints Sunday. Looking good at this point.

  4. And stop with Demeco Ryan’s hype. He’s not a good defensive coordinator. How did his defense do against KC? He looked confused on the sideline.
